UCSB graduate student Pascal Salomon (piano), will present a DMA lecture recital on Sunday, June 5, 2016 at 3 p.m. in Karl Geiringer Hall on the UCSB campus.
“Schumann’s Fantasie Op. 17, 1st Movement: A Phenomenological Quest for Unity”
Pascal Salomon will open a discussion of music phenomenology with an introductory demonstration using a short, simple piece of Schumann’s in order to illustrate a phenomenological approach to music. He will present the main concepts of Edmund Husserl, the founder of phenomenology, and explain their application to music. He will continue with a phenomenological description of a section of Schumann's Fantasie op. 17. Based on the phenomenon of musical tension, he will zoom in for details and out for overviews, and will show how musical components bear perceptual features that touch and move us. He will show how we can build relationships between ever broader sections of music until a single graph summarizes a whole movement in a unified perception.
